Ed Cyzewski investigates the crisis of attention that is leading to mental health challenges and extending to our souls.
The Christian contemplative tradition--deeply rooted in the spiritual traditions and practices of the church--offers a way forward, grinding the gears of our frenetic on-screen activity and thinking to an unspectacular halt.
Grounded in current research into the impact of technology, Reconnect helps Christians rewire their technology addictions and train themselves to be present and aware of God rather than tuned into the constant distractions and deceptions of this digital time.
When phones go dark and social media feeds stop scrolling, can we step into a deeper stillness and presence with an always present God?
